About the Play:

The Long Weekend is a full-length comedy by Norm Foster. During a weekend visit between two couples, the true nature of their relationships come to the surface as the four so-called 'best friends' slowly discover how they really feel about each other. The Long Weekend is a hilariously tangled web of truths, deception, and surprises that leaves the audience guessing – and laughing – all the way to the final curtain!

The Long Weekend is about the truth, lies, and animosity found in the friendship between two couples during a weekend visit. Successful lawyer Max and his wife Wynn are about to show off their beautiful new their summer home to their best friends, Roger and Abby. But it doesn't take long to uncover the true feelings behind this long friendship. What is meant to be a relaxing holiday weekend turns into a battle of wits as their pasts catch up with them, the gloves come off and old scores get settled in comedic fashion. Pompous Max dislikes Roger's laid-back life as wannabe writer, while Roger in turn feels threatened by Max's financial success. Wynn and Abby each secretly dread the other's criticism of their lifestyle and tastes. The Long Weekend delivers non-stop mischievous fun and scrumptious plot twists!

The Long Weekend premiered in 1994 at Festival Antigonish in Nova Scotia. Since then it has proved very popular with community theatres.

About the Playwright:

Norm Foster enjoyed a 25-year career as the morning man at independent radio stations in Thunder Bay, Winnipeg, and Kingston, before finally ending up in Fredericton, where he began writing plays. He is considered to be Canada's most produced playwright, with more than fifty-five critically acclaimed plays that are known for their humour, accessibility, and insight into the everyday tribulations of life. He is the recipient of the Los Angeles Drama-Logue Award for his play, The Melville Boys which would go on to be produced across Canada and in the United States, including a well-received run Off Broadway in New York. It would become his signature play, and the one which would bring his name to the forefront of Canadian theatre.
